A Rose by Any Other Name
« on: March 08, 2014, 01:04:31 AM »

Our CFO, Charles Evans, just published an article in LetsTalkBitcoin that I think is fantastic!


In addition to giving some helpful insights about bitAssets, he also addresses another vitally important issue that keeps coming up around here:

We speak in similes, metaphors, and analogies.

Thus, we often get accused of violating this or that regulatory domain,
just because we used a metaphor from its lexicon to help explain a new concept.

Words have meanings, but sometimes the same word can have opposite meanings.

I plan to point to this article often. 
Every time some outraged legal-beagle shouts in an accusatory tone,
"Yer usin' coconuts!"
Which then results in a vigorous irrelevant argument worthy of Monty Python:



This, of course, was exactly the whole point of my original tounge-in-cheek fable:
Innocence is No Excuse.  http://invictus-innovations.com/innocence-is-no-excuse/




Enjoy.   :)

No need to tip him, he was paid to write it :)

And he enjoyed writing it.  A classic piece of literature is it's own reward!

So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

Maybe we can transcribe in 5th grade troll.  ;D

Seriously though, if by chance your comment was constructive, we could collaborate on a:
BitShares children's book, graphic novel or cartoon series.

I'd be willing to pony up some bounty for animators, script contributors, etc...

It would be fun, educational and good for the community. I've actually been evaluating the Muvizu studio, It's an amazing tool, very powerful and easy to use. Check out the free download.

If anyone is interested, in participating PM me. I'll open up a thread shortly. Cheers

In fact, it has been translated into Chinese VERY WELL. Most of the Chinese who had read the translated article said the translation is FABULOUS. Check it here: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=3516.0

I've been thinking along these lines, too. It would be nice if each new DAC had an animated video like the original Bitcoin video.
